Jimmy the Cat...Will Get No Free Summer Camp!

iD Tech in action

OK,

So you are probably thinking I have a lot of extra spare time on my hands if I am blogging about a cat. Not true. This is a serious post! I take running summer camps and computer camps very seriously. But I also take my front yard seriously. Sort of.

Here's the deal. My son and I planted flowers in the front yard last weekend. Probably the first time I have planted flowers in about 5 years--my wife would say "ever." You get the idea. Well, all week long, there had been an anonymous animal (neighbor's dog?...squirrel?) digging up the flowers. I started getting a little bit upset because half the flowers have died this week. I pretty much figured it was the dog next door (Stella) who was to blame. But I had no proof. Until this morning as I was pulling out of the driveway. It was JIMMY THE CAT!

Jimmy is my cat. He is 7 years old. Many people in the office know him for his crazy tom-cat antics. But he is the culprit--the one taking care of business on my flowers. He digs them up. He rolls around on them. He waters and fertilizes them. Well, Jimmy...you have been caught. You have been blogged!

Being that we are somewhat tech-savvy in our house, I won't be surprised if Jimmy tries to tweet something bad about me this week, just to get me back. Nobody likes candids of themselves caught in the act. I will be on the lookout.

If you want to see more on Jimmy, leave me a comment, and there will be more. I could get really crazy and start YouTubing this guy...if he doesn't get me first!
